Jersey's new-look bank notes unveiled by treasury

Jersey's new 20 note
The denomination is written in Jerriais on the back of the notes

Jersey's new-look bank notes which will go into circulation in April have been unveiled.

The £1, £5, £10, £20 and £50 notes have been redesigned to reflect various aspects of the island's culture, history and architecture.

Each note also has a new image of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II.

Increased security measure have been taken by the treasury to prevent forgeries, including holograms, watermarks and 100% cotton paper.

The hologram only features on notes of higher denomination.

Jerriais, the island's native Norman French, has been included. Treasury Minister Philip Ozouf said he hoped this would help revive the language.

In 2008, the circulation of notes earned the States nearly £4m.
